ERIE — Joe Everson, an artist, vocalist, musician and Internet sensation, will perform at the Manufacturer & Business Association’s 114th Annual Event on Wednesday evening, October 9, at the Bayfront Convention Center. All media are invited to attend.
Everson, whose appearance is sponsored by National Fuel, will sing “God Bless the USA” while painting a live-action, patriotic artwork before more than 1,000 guests at the Annual Event, the region’s premier business networking event. The program begins at 5 p.m.
With his “Bob Ross meets Frank Sinatra” style, the self-described Anthem Artist has traveled the country performing at professional sports events and private gatherings, and for Fortune 500 companies alike.
“We are very much looking forward to Mr. Everson’s performance,” says Association President and CEO John Krahe. “The combination of his voice and his artistry is so powerful, and the final product is a true masterpiece. We can’t wait for our members to see what he has in store for us.”
Everson gained notoriety back in 2016 at a Toledo Walleye game in Ohio. At that time, Everson sang the National Anthem while painting the iconic 1945 Iwo Jima photograph of soldiers raising the American flag. A video of the performance posted to social media went viral, which prompted a call from a producer at Fox & Friends.
